Science and Technology of Advanced Materials journal sees a 2.54 times increase in the Impact Factor in 2008 - 2010

07.07.2011
According to Thomson Reuters, the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (STAM) now ranks 34th out of 222 journals in the category of Materials Science & Multidisciplinary worldwide, and is ranked 1st among materials science journals in Japan.

The impact factor of the journal, Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (STAM) has risen from 1.267 in 2008 to 3.220 in 2010. This impressive increase clearly demonstrates the importance of STAM to the materials science community worldwide. STAM is published by the National Institute for Materials Science in Tsukuba, Japan, in partnership with Institute of Physics Publishing, UK.

According to Thomson Reuters, STAM now ranks 34th out of 222 journals in the category of Materials Science & Multidisciplinary worldwide, and is ranked 1st among materials science journals in Japan.

Launched eleven years ago, the journal offers an open access platform - free to submit, free to read - for the rapid dissemination of high-quality research papers and review articles for the global materials science community.

The most cited articles in STAM 2010 are;

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes
